Henry Kissinger Global Conference Room, Paley Center for Media

New York, NY
Lee H. Skolnick Architecture + Design

The Kissinger Global Conference Room is a high-tech, media-based room for teleconferencing, meetings, and presentations. The meeting room includes a forty-person elliptical conference table with built-in teleconferencing, presentation technology with a video projection screen at each end of the room, a full room audio system, three state of the art robotic ceiling-mounted cameras, and microphones for all forty positions at the conference table.

The lighting challenge was to provide a flexible lighting design that included high-quality video lighting without using unsightly studio fixtures. The solution involved a combination of wall washing, indirect light from a cove, and carefully placed accent lights to provide the required illumination without causing discomfort to the meeting attendees.
